Nearly 20 years ago when my mom and step-dad made the move from Kuna, Idaho to Garden Valley, Idaho – Crouch was just barely a spot on the road with a saloon, a store, and a gas station.
Boy has it grown!
One of the things we love through the warm months is the farmer’s market in the center of town on a Saturday.
You will find everything from baked goods, to home made sausage to jellies, jams and preserves to hand crafts, jewelry and even quilted items.
I met several quilters yesterday down at the Crouch Farmer's Market!
I was told that these are known as “Easter Egg” radishes and they just were so pretty from white to pink to red!
Mom in front of “The Merc” Which used to be the local grocery until they built a brand new big one!
Signs point the way to local businesses!
See the blue sign about half the way down? Stitch and Snip is the local quilt shop, and of course we went in for a wander and a browse and to say hello! When you live in this area, everyone knows EVERYONE and if you stop at the grocery for ONE item, be prepared to spend an hour catching up in conversation with everyone about everything.
A local antique shop had a display of THREE machines, all of which I wish could have come home with me, but of course none of them did…..
This I believe is a Singer 101 –see the square shape of the feed dog cover?
Al I know is it is NOT a 201 or a 15! I hope someone adopts it…..
301 long bed in “As Is” condition for about $100.00
There are no cords or foot pedals included and it looked pretty rough so – nooooooo, as much as I would have loved to rescue her, she needs someone who doesn’t have to FLY home to pick her up.
Quilts! Ooooh YELLOW!
Don’t you love a simple sweet 9 patch? I do!
Log cabin and pickle dish on display --
Sweet 1930s pinwheel…LOVE this border!
Mom held it out so I could get a better photo!
This was in the “Christmas” room…Doves!
The tan doves were originally green, and this was made around 1900.
White work on red!
This one was all biblical scenes….
LOVE this block!
Don’t you love the quilting texture and the double pink??
Outside under a bunch of display stuff was the BEST quilt of all!
It was all I could do to restrain myself from sweeping up all the papers on the table just so I could get to the quilt.
Binding in 1930s print….this is just so sweet!
We enjoyed our day, ate lunch out, shopped a couple of yard sales and just enjoyed being together, my mom and I.
This cabin was built more than 100 years ago and still stands, but has not been lived in in over 50 years. It’s an area icon.
Much love from the mountains of Idaho!
